're in a global economy the new world order, which was brought in by the first george bush signed into law by clinton. so this is bipartisan, that is our economy and we wrote the rules as far as a global economy and others follow it. so when we talk about shipping overseas, that's the game. we wrote the rules. i will close on this, on the great city of detroit when we always talk about the bailout or which way it should go or bain capital. people have to realize, they have to understand this, most of general motors' jobs are now presently overseas and the head of general motors who took all of the money is now crying that $7.5 million in pay is not enough. the united states auto workers are still at entry level being hired in at over $19 an hour, that's just their pay but their total compensation with health care, with their bonuses comes out to $55 an hour. >> brian in oscota, michigan. gideon moore, talk to us about the economic situation particularly in mechanic levenburg -- mecklenburg county and charlotte, which is a big banking center. >> it is primarily a finance center. we have bee
reading on the economy before election day shows stronger than expected job gains. but more people were look for work last month and that pushed unemployment a tenth of a point higher to 7 .9%. still a pickup of 171,000 jobs is significant. economist stewart hoffman calls it the real deal. >> a good gain in jobs, a widespread gains, this isn't a fluke, it's a genuine improvement in the jobs market. >> in a moment lou dobbs will tell us if he agrees with that point of view. here is what is really happening. unemployment ticked up to 7.9%. however, there were more jobs available in october. in fact, the workforce rose by 578,000 americans. that's good. the reason unemployment went up is because more americans are now looking for jobs because more jobs are becoming available. the bad news is that unemployment among african americans jumped almost a full percentage point from 13.4% to 14.3%. that is a disaster. also, the real unemployment rate in october was 14.6%, including people who have given up looking for work. bottom line, 12.5 million americans who want to work, can't find employmen
in this country to push our economy and improve the economy over the next four years. host: breaking news this morning. we have been talking about the jobs numbers coming out today. 7.9%, slightly up from 7.8%, the unemployment rate, from september. showing 171,000 jobs added in october, this according to the u.s. bureau of labor statistics this morning. i want to get your quick reaction to those numbers. guest: first of all, that is virtually no change. yes, it is an uptick, and it was down the month before. but unemployment is staying basically around 8%. if you count the people of -- who have given up looking for jobs in this country, we have over 20 million people who are unemployed right now. we have to address their needs and concerns, and make sure they have jobs over the next four years. by producing 12 million jobs, a lot of these people will be put back to work. if we continue the policies of the last four years, i am afraid we will see the next norm for unemployment in this country will be 8%, and the unemployment figures are going to stay around that 20 million figure. i think
the economy grew at a 2% annual rate in the third quarter. that's better than expected, and up from 1.3% in the second quarter. where's the economy cooking? we asked anthony mason to show us. >> reporter: from its storefront in plainfield, new jersey, e & a restaurant supply ships out everything from stoves to plates and silverware. owner joel green says restaurants are opening again and that's been good for business. >> things definitely have picked up but it's been fairly strong all the way since april up until this point. >> reporter: green says the uncertainty surrounding the election is making business owners more cautious, but he likes the direction his business is headed. >> if it keeps rolling the way it is, i see it being strong. >> reporter: the 2% growth in the economy nationally in the third quarter was fueled in part by consumer spending, which rose 2%, and by a housing market that's showing increasing signs of life. but a 13% jump in defense spending by the government played the biggest role. without that increase, the economy's growth rate would have been only 1.4%. thi
, to big an economy. the government can effect the direction of developments not the degree. >> the medication isn't that much stronger. i mean, you rule out protectionism, trade wars with china that kind of stuff which a lot of people reach to as a cure what's in the disease. >> yes. >> you're obviously strongly in favor of a marshall plan for middle class skills. community colleges. >> absolutely. and i think we can do some pretty radical things in education and training. you know, i don't see why education should be -- should cost -- why higher education should cost any american more than a nominal amount. i think that we can give tuition-free scholarships to everyone who attends public schools, public universities. and we have great public universities in america. and it would be a matter of rechanneling the student aid we now provide into this. and it would take it away from the private universities. i am saying look i'm a product of private universities but as a matter of public policy the distribution of money between the private and public sector in education i think
grow our economy. lending more so companies and communities can expand, grow stronger and get back to work. everyday you see all of us serving you, around the country, around the corner. us bank. @%u: a president has a new economic plan strikingly similar to the old one but has more pictures. four more years of the president's policies for the country in just moments. here's what have been don wall street. gdp expanded at 4% but news the economy is growing as some feared. of the edo squeezes out modest gains trading on the big board. 3.3 billion in line with recent activity. the dow is down and the nasdaq just over half a percent. gasoline futures moving higher with supply disruptions on the east coast worried about hurricane sandy. the 10 year note is coming back with a sense things are slowly improving. consumer confidence shows rising at to a five-year high. some expected more than that. more bad news with the president green energy agenda. despite -- inspector general slamming the green jobs training program and that the independent report. more than half of the 81,000 who part
of shutdown or default and that of course chills the economy, puts more people out of work. the president was right when he said he can't change washington from the inside. you can take him at his word. that's why we're going to send him outside. all right? when i'm elected i'm going to work with republicans and democrats in congress. i'm going to meet regularly with their leaders. i'm going to endeavor to find those good men and women on both sides of the aisle who care more about the country than they do about politics. and together, we're going to put the nation back on track to a balanced budget and to reform our tax code and to finally reaffirm our commitment to financial responsibility. now, if the president were to be re-elected he would continue his war on coal and oil and natural gas. he would send billions more to his favorite friends and all of this means higher gasoline prices and fewer jobs. today gasoline costs twice what it did when president obama took office. and when i'm elected, we're going to change the course of energy entirely. i know just how much energy means to mi
headway on the economy. back in july, obama had a 16-point lead on that measure. today, it's tied. did you wait too long? >> absolutely not. i mean, you know, it's interesting that you're pointing out your national tracker poll but in the virginia poll that you just cited we are beating romney in terms of who do you trust to get the economy going? in terms of the president's plans, we're happy to talk about them. we ran a two-minute ad on it. we have been campaigning across the country on this plan. you know, whether it's putting the best trained workers all over this country. bringing jobs back to this country. rather than sending them overseas or doing some nation-building at home. we're ending two wars. these are big plans and the president laid them out at the convention and it's a second term of an obama presidency will mean. it stands in sharp contrast to romney romney's. we can look at these polls a million different ways. they all say something different. at the end of the day, we're focused on getting the president across the country. meeting as many voters as possible. and invest
to start the day. i mean, one of the great entrepreneurs of the american economy, steve case, who not only has such incredible impact with aol, but now with revolution is funding and helping to develop a whole range of companies in a variety of industries. meanwhile, living in the washington area has gotten incredibly involved in trying to help the u.s. government think more intelligently about competitiveness and entrepreneurship in particular. then josh linkner, a local star here who runs detroit venture partners as i'm sure many of you know, if you're from detroit, you certainly know that, a supporter of this event which we're very grateful for, and i think symbolic of the incredible new energy that's developing in detroit. and i should also say that josh created a company calls eprize in 1999 here in detroit. it's been operating all this time. two weeks ago it sold for a nice exit. [applause] so here's the story of a local company that came from here, went all the way and, you know, he's done real well with that. meanwhile, he's invested in a ton of other companies. so i just want to s
the economy around saying the president has failed to meet the challenge fay can the united states. >> the difference between us, he makes promises and he couldn't keep. i'm making promises i have kept and i will keep them for the american people. [ cheers and applause ] >> reporter: president obama meantime, continuing down the path you can't trust governor romney. that he is misleading american people, imploring to give him another four years to get the economy on track. now is not the time to be changing horses. >> after four years of president you know me. you may not agree with every decision i have made. maybe you are frustrated about the pace of change but you know what i believe. you know where i stand. you know i tell the truth and you know i'll fight for you your families every single day. >> reporter: part of what the president said feeds into the narrative that governor romney is creating here. that he is a nice guy and means well but he doesn't put a take to get things done. something that happened yesterday, in springfield, ohio when president obama said thiskr romney
about the economy. >> cenk: then we got a great elbow for you try to guess it. it's somebody that's in the news but elbow comes from very surprising face. guess at @tytoncncncncncncncncncncncncncncncncncncncncncncncncncncncnc thomas jefferson said that a successful democracy depended on an informed electorate. our country's future depends on to help you make informed decisions, watch current tv's politically direct lineup. only on current tv. take the time to learn about the issues. don't just vote, vote smart. double miles you can "actually" use. but with those single mile travel cards...

already struggling economy? storm the cost about $20 billion in damage. some predict 30 billion. in last business activity for more joining me now maryland economist, peter morici. welcome back, you had a number i saw nowhere else in estimates total costs, of this storm, you said 35 to 45 billion-dollars, how do you get there? >> we will have about 20 million in property loss. initial estimates are 5 to 10, for irene they were 7, but irene was closer to 20, i think they will be as bad. but now, look at all stores that are closed, flights that have not gone out, hotels and businesses onshore and new york city that are down for 4 days, that is a loss of income. that is 20 billion that gets me to 40. gerri: wow, okay that makes sense. people underestimate the costs. i read new york city alone is an economy with $4 billion that pumps out $ 4 billion every day, times 5 is $20 billion, not just damage you repair. it is also the loss of productivity, workdays, loss payroll, it could be far more devastating than we've been talking babout, you also said, in short term painful but longer term we g

for the president? >> i think if you look at all the economic indicators and where we've seen the economy move over the last three years, especially given what the president inherited in 2009, americans should feel good about the direction we're going in. we've had 33 straight months of new private sector jobs added. second month under 8% for unemployment. we still have work to do. that's what's so important about this election. we need to stick with president, show up and vote for the president so we can keep the policies moving forward that have gotten us headed back the right direction. and not go backwards to the economic policies of the past, the ones that mitt romney is advocating for where you have a trickle down economic attitude. that's exactly what got us into this mess in the first place. we feel good about the report on friday. we know there's a on the more to do. and the president is going to keep working until every american who wants a job can get a job. but we feel like the economy is a good issue for us and the president is proud of his record. >> brent colburn, hope you get some s

debt in liabilities threatened to crush our feature. our economy struggles under the weight of government and fails to create the essential growth and employment that we need. >> now, during monday's debate, he noted the immediate danger of debt, too. >> admiral mullen said that our debt is the biggest national security threat we face. >> but what would president mitt romney do to slash the debt? well, given everything we know now, his plan doesn't add up. we know three big things about romney's plan. one. he wants to cut tax rates and pay for it by closing loopholes. two. he wants to increase defense spending by about $2 trillion over ten years. and three, he says he'll balance the budget at the end of his second term. let's start with the tax cuts. >> i want to bring down rates. want to bring the rates down, at the same time, lower deductions and credits so we keep getting the revenue we need. >> romney's across the board tax cut of 20% is $5 trillion worth. now, romney plans to close loophole to pay for it. we just don't know which wups, so we had to take some liberties o
the impact on our first responders. i'm worried about the impact on our economy and on transportation. the election will take care of itself next week. right now, our number one priority is to to make sure that we are saving lives that are search and rescue teams will be in place and people will get the food, the water shs the shelter they need in case of emergency and we respond as quickly as possible to get the economy back on track. >> the election will take care of itself. that was president obama addressing reporters earlier today at the white house. this is one of the things you can't really predict in terms of the effect on a presidential campaign. this massive storm, a storm of more than regional, basically national significance. it's hit the pause button on a presidential campaign. it's hard to know how it's going to play out exactly. mostly because we don't know what the overall impact of the storm itself is going to be. the defacto suspension of the campaign itself today and the handling of this crisis by president obama and to a lesser extent mitt romney made themselves be
